    1 to 3 Images from a Canadian seller, with permission.

    This jar has long history of debates, ever since I used it to attribute it's shape to Kralik after some months of study and solid conclusions.

    The facts are the series of the same shape jars include one with the arch mark, considered Kralik, and one with the IRIS label and decor, absolutely attributed to Kralik on my website page.

    I find it perfectly normal if there are slight millimetres difference in the foot rest base, as another mold had to be used, and there was the additional application of the frit finish, which changed the exact overall shape and size to a small extent.

    You can also see here in image 3 how a photo taken from the top changes the perceive proportions. Last image just added on, from anoher European seller - sold archive glass items, with permission.

    There is a distinct Kralik webbed decor glass on an orange background jar, the image angle is the same as the 1st image, yet the lighting is different (yes, that can also affect perceptions of shape). The base seems slightly different, yet they are both produced by Kralik. Frankly hot furnace molded glass production will never be as exact a replica as pressed glass would be. To argue that point seems illogical and a non issue.

      Here is the link to my website page, that was a study 4 years ago, to identify this glass jar shape. Of course, not everybody agreed, as it went against their own beliefs and attributions. I see it as another form of claiming many Kralik glass pieces as being produced by someone else.

      The only proof being images taken by different people, in different circumstances and with different types of cameras. See bottom of this page, with a series of jar decors and mutiples camera angles you can match:

      Somehow my picture ended up cropped on welzebub's edited image 2 on his last post about lamps, another effort to create conflict on CW.
      I had permission, did you? Whose was it?

      I also want to thanks the many people who were kind enough to support this effort. Thank you CW members.
